You most likely have a Ps3 Blueray Lens Burnout
If you are not in warranty then try this link

I have one of the older model playstation 3 consoles, it plays ps2 games as well. lately it's been having a hard time reading the ps3 discs. sometimes I have to take the disc out and put back in about ten...


The PS3 disk and the Bluray disk require more intensity from the laser or, depending which model you own, has a seperate lens to read them all together. PS2 games are equivilant to DVDs and then you have CDs at the bottom. Check out "how to clean my Bluray lens" on google. Might even check youtube. All you need is alcohol and q-tips. Don't press down too hard when cleaning and don't worry, the alcohol dries very quickly. Clean it with alchol then cleans again with dry q-tip. very easy.

NOTE: when removing the Bluray drive from the board, the ribbon clips "flip up" and DO NOT "pull out" like most PCs (computers) do....if you are familiar.

My PS3 wont load actual PS3 games but it will load PS2 games just fine. What's wrong?


Could be because it is a PS3 model with two lasers, one for bluray and one for DVDs. The bluray one may be shot.
Also had the same issue with a single laser PS3 and just needed to have the laser replaced.

Ps3 wont play games, dvds, or blurays. The disc doesn't spin??


This may be a case of replacing the laser lens. If your console is out of warranty, take it to your local Game Stop, or somewhere that does Sony repair. PSR does Sony authorized repair, but it usually involves shipping. You can contact PSR at 877-777-3491, or email at psr_repairs@msn.com. Hope this was helpful

Blu ray movies do not play


Have you checked your video output for the bluray to make sure it is set properly? You should be able to set it to automatic so it will be able to set the signal at the proper level. It also wouldn't hurt to try a lens cleaner which is for the Bluray and ps3 system. (approx $25 at BestBuy)

My ps3 can play dvds and also ps2 games but not ps3 games


if your ps3 plays regular dvds and playstation 2 games but not blurays is most likely that your system needs a new laser lens not the whole bluray drive people tink that they do need to replace the whole bluray drive to fix this problem but all you need to do is replace the bluray laser lents it is cheaper but people replace the complete bluray drive because it is easer I am a ebay thrusted seller and I do sell both the laser or the bluray or use playstations so this is why I know your problem verry good you can do this your self or have some one installed for you or I you can send the bluray drive to me and I can sell you just the laser and installed for you there is a lot of options on this hopefully I have solve or a least help you in your problem thanks

PS3 not recognizing any disc


See if a DVD works. For me, I know my Bluray is ruined because I can watch DVDs and play PS2 games fine but anything Bluray does not work. If a DVD does not work, you have more of a problem, if DVD does work you need a new BlueRay which Sony should take care of for you. If you don't have receipt, etc. like me you can buy a new Bluray (KES-400AAA) on Ebay and use this guide to install it http://edpsystemssupport.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=29&Itemid=45.
Hope that helps.
